In the series of new brasseries popping up throughout Nantes, Gaston can easily hold its own, with its raw, industrial vintage design, big tables, long, tiled counter, and beautiful windows overlooking the street. The best things about it (aside from its central location) are the service (fast, warm and relaxed), the fact that it’s open a bit later than most for lunch and dinner, and its excellent dishes, all cooked to perfection (beef tartare, pizzas, veal hanger steak, pork ribs, homemade French fries).
